Vehicle History Report

What’s a VIN?
A Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) is the 17-character identifier for your car, truck, or motorcycle. It looks like this: 1VXBR12EXCP901213, and encodes the vehicle’s manufacturer, features, and serial number. No two vehicles have the same VIN, so it serves as your car’s fingerprint– this allows for all reports of accidents, title problems, insurance incidents, and more to be tracked through each vehicle’s VIN.

Through VinAudit.com, you can look up records associated with your VIN instantly:

Where can I find my VIN?
You can find your vehicle’s VIN in the title document, the vehicle registration, and on the insurance policy. The VIN could also be located at the following locations on the car itself:

  • On the driver’s side dashboard
    (viewable through the windshield)
  • On the driver’s side door
    (on a sticker in the door jamb)

Why would I order a VIN report?
A VIN report lets you learn about your vehicle’s history. It includes checks for whether the car has been stolen, experienced accidents, recorded as salvaged, as well as many othertitle problem checks. Ordering a VIN report before purchasing a vehicle allows you to catch potential problems and purchase with confidence.

Dealer License Agent SCAM

Curbstone task force breaks up fraudulent dealer scheme in East Valley

ADOT, Department of Revenue partnership takes down large operation

February 26, 2020

PHOENIX – Working to protect people around the country from fraud involving used cars, state investigators have broken up a major criminal operation based in the East Valley that illegally produced tens of thousands of titles for vehicles being sold in 42 states.

With seven arrests made on Wednesday, Feb. 19, this is by far the largest operation broken up since Governor Doug Ducey signed legislation in 2018 creating the Arizona Curbstone Enforcement Joint Task Force, which combines the resources of ADOT’s Office of Inspector General, Arizona Department of Revenue and Arizona Independent Automobile Dealers Association. This task force combats vehicle sales made in violation of state laws governing dealer licensing, a practice known as curbstoning.

“Our partnership with the Department of Revenue was invaluable by bringing their investigators in to assist,” said Lt. James Warriner with ADOT’s Office of Inspector General, part of the agency’s Enforcement and Compliance Division. “Together, our agencies are delivering a one-two punch to stop curbstoning and illegal vehicle sales in Arizona.”

The case involves a scheme in which individuals allegedly subscribed to one of several websites identified by investigators to obtain wholesale and retail dealer license credentials from the suspects, rather than the state, for a monthly fee, usually in the hundreds of dollars. These credentials allowed about 1,500 individuals to attend and bid on vehicles at wholesale auctions in their states.

The operation also altered vehicle titles from these subscribers for about $100 per title to make it appear as though the individuals bought the vehicles from one of the suspects’ 31 operations with dealer licenses. More than 31,000 titles were processed this way over the past couple of years, and many of the vehicles involved were never in Arizona.

The operation has generated around $7 million fraudulently over the past couple of years.

ADOT detectives and Department of Revenue investigators, joined by special agents with the Arizona Attorney General’s Office, served search warrants at six locations last week, including homes in Chandler and Gilbert and at a storefront in Mesa, arresting the suspects and searching for further evidence. Each suspect is facing multiple charges, including the felonies of fraudulent schemes and artifices, money laundering and tax evasion.

Curbstoning involves selling vehicles in a way that violates the parameters set by a dealer’s license. That could mean selling more than six vehicles in a consecutive 12-month period for an unlicensed dealer, or selling vehicles away from the designated area of sale for a licensed dealer.

In this case, licensed dealers are accused of illegally consigning their licenses out to other individuals in other states, allowing those individuals to bypass paying taxes, registration fees and laws regarding vehicle dealers.

Curbstoned vehicles typically involve other violations such as title fraud, odometer fraud and covered-up flood damage. Consumers in the market for used vehicles should do their homework before handing over any money.

When dealing with cases of curbstoning, ADOT detectives will share case information with Department of Revenue investigators and even bring them along to check out curbstoning sites.

In addition to fraud by licensed and unlicensed dealers, detectives with ADOT’s Office of Inspector General investigate identity theft, fraud involving vehicle title and registration, and support investigations by state, local and federal law enforcement.

Visalia DMV Clerk Sentenced

Former DMV Employee Sentenced for Falsifying Government Records

Case investigated by CSLEA AMVIC member Calen Albert

VISALIA – On August 1, 2019, Tulare County Superior Court, Visalia Division Judge Brett Alldredge sentenced Jose Hernandez, 53, to four years suspended state prison and ordered Hernandez to spend 270 days in custody of the Tulare County jail.

On May 14, 2019, Hernandez pleaded no contest to six felony counts of computer access fraud to alter a record and six felony counts of falsifying a government record. The 12 counts constituted all charges filed against Hernandez. No plea offers were made in this case.

The case arose out of an intensive two-year internal investigation by the California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) involving offices in Los Angeles, San Diego and Tulare counties. Multiple DMV employees, including Hernandez in Visalia, fraudulently granted passing scores on written tests to individuals who did not passed the necessary tests for commercial licenses. Hernandez did this with six drivers who paid $400 to $600 to DMV employees or intermediaries to upgrade their licenses.

“This case depicts the difficult and time-consuming investigative work done by DMV investigators.  It’s unfortunate the investigation involved employees within their own department.  It is not a reflection of those DMV clerks who perform their jobs honestly and work to protect all of us from drivers who, either shouldn’t be behind the wheel, or need more time to better understand the rules of the road,” said California Statewide Law Enforcement Association (CSLEA) President Alan Barcelona.

The case was prosecuted by Deputy District Attorney Paula Clark of the Consumer Protection Unit and was investigated by DMV Investigator Calen Albert of the DMV Office of Internal Affairs.

How can I reduce the cost of my Car Dealer Bond?

The most common reason for a high priced car dealer bond is that the dealer principal does not have established credit.

When this happens, no credit scores the same as bad credit.

There are a few reasons why folks don’t have established credit when they are getting their car dealer license.

Being young and not having any debt or loans may be the most common.

Being a cash person is another common reason.

For this purpose you must start to establish credit. The process of building credit will take some time but getting a credit card with a very low limit can help quite a bit.

Once you have the card activated simply purchase at least $55 worth of items every week and pay the card off every month.

Keep doing the same thing and your score will go up. Having available credit that you are not using will quickly improve your overall credit profile.
